IMPORTANT: THIS TOUR IS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM APRIL 3 TO MAY 4.
Enjoy the spring with its fields of flowers around a Belgian castle with a unique atmosphere.
Every year the castle of Grand Bigard (Groot-Bijgaarden) opens its doors for a few weeks for an unforgettable flower experience. This year, the gardeners have planted by hand more than one million bulbs thanks to the participation of major Dutch bulb producers and exporters. Although the tulips usually get special attention with almost 400 varieties, hyacinths and daffodils are also well represented.
1. Begin our tour admiring the Flemish Renaissance castle built in the 17th century.
2. Discover the 17th century "Tulip Mania" that created and destroyed so many fortunes in the Low Countries.
3. Walk along unique flower beds that attract many tourists every year from Europe, China, Japan, and the USA.
How Beeyonder Works
What is a virtual tour?
All of our online tours are live and interactive. This means everyone on the tour can speak directly to the guide throughout the tour to experience the destination as if you are actually there.
How To Join A Tour
Easy to use! After booking, you get a unique link to a streaming platform, such as Zoom, to begin each tour. No other technology needed.
Preparing for your Virtual Tour
This is a private Live Walking tour. You will be connected via Zoom and your guide will explain to you all the experiences while walking on the street. We love curious people, so the more questions and interactions you have with your guide, the better!
You need to have the software Zoom installed on your cellphone, tablet, or laptop; and also a stable internet connection, speakers, or headphones.
Also, remember always the time difference when choosing a time for your experience. FLORALIA opens its doors from Monday to Sunday and from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm (Brussels Time - CST + 1 UTC).
Meet Your Live Virtual Guide
We are Curiositas Mundus, a team of three professional guides (Laura, Miriam, and Samuel) deeply in love with Belgium. Every year we receive lots of international groups that want to see the best cities and museums in this part of Europe. We work with schools, families, companies, VIPs, non-profits, seniors, special needs... in English, Spanish, and French. And now we want also to share all these amazing places, cultures, and heritage with people that prefer to enjoy a staycation or a holystay! Are you open to all the surprises that we have prepared for you?
